Another Day At Kamala Beach, Phuket

After a few false starts, I finally caught up with Cara and Mike last night along with several of their friends. Dinner was a whole barramundi and another cocktail 🙂

After dinner we bumped into Mum and Dad shortly after they had arrived. Following drinks at Smile Bar, it was time for a foot massage. To my surprise, a guy (with an Istanbul t-shirt on) came up and spoke Turkish to the Thai massage parlour manager. I find out that the manager had lived in Antalya for 8 years so it was good to practice my Turkish with her. I will be back there for my next massage, hopefully later today.

I was again up by 6am for another long walk. This time I went a different way, past Phuket FantaSea. After buying a local sim card, I had chicken and rice along with coriander flavoured soup for breakfast at a menu-free place. Judging by the clientele, it was one frequented by local Muslims. When I first arrived, I was surprised at how many Muslims lived here. I shouldn’t have been as I knew Thailand’s south has a large Muslim population. There are many head-scarfed ladies and my taxi driver from the airport displayed Arabic calligraphy.

  1. Loving the photos Joe, your photography is getting better and better… Do I foresee an exhibition coming soon? LOL enjoy your holiday and have a lovely exploration of yet another country. How many was that now?

  2. Thanks Shannon – if you’re lucky I may even give you a private viewing of my exhibition 🙂

    I actually visited Thailand back in early 2000 so I can’t add it to the country count (not that I keep a total in my head). I can add Cambodia though. Just for you, I’m about to calculate the visited country count. And the total is… 39
